I’m toying with the idea of buying one of these.
This is the Uberti 1873 Cattleman Bird’s Head revolver, in .45 Colt. The basic gun is a clone of the famous Colt Model P. I’d prefer to have the 3″ barrel option, even though that would preclude my hot .45 Colt loads; I think the gun would handle it but it would be a handful to shoot.
Why do I want one? I’m not entirely certain. It would make a nice backup piece to my belt guns in the big .45 Colt (a Smith & Wesson 25-5 and a Ruger Vaquero) or a decent CCW piece in its own right. But I think I’d like to have one mostly because I think they’re cool. And that’s reason enough, right? Of course right.

Of course Xi is prepping China for war. You’d have to be an idiot not to see it.
Are Democrats Really This Dumb Or Just Evil? I’d point out that the two are not mutually exclusive.
Florida is now a Constitutional carry state. That makes a majority of states with permitless carry.
The marketing people for Bud Light are all idiots. Honestly, who still drinks this stuff? It’s “sex in a canoe” beer – fucking close to water.
This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Last week’s Eddie Money video prompted a comment from a reader, pointing out that the red-hot Latina in the video was actually Apollonia Kotero, who co-starred with Prince in his 1984 film Purple Rain. I might have spotted her before if I had seen that film since I originally did, in 1984, at the Midnight Movie in the old Waterloo Theater in Waterloo, Iowa. The theater served beer at the Midnight Movie, and there was usually a joint or two being passed around, which added a little… flavor to the experience.
In those days I listened to a bit of Prince as he got a lot of radio play, in addition to being a regular feature back when MTV was new and actually, you know, had music. I recognized his talent even though I wasn’t an enormous fan of his style (he was a quite good technical guitarist in addition to being a dynamic performer) but I did, and still do, kind of like the song Little Red Corvette. Here, then, is the official video for that song, just like you might have seen on MTV back in the day – enjoy.
